How long?: This is tricky you may have a simple strain of the abdominal muscles or internal injuries. Stop the advil (ibuprofen). I think you should go to the ER and get a check up. they can do some simple blood work see if your anemic get an xray or cat scanof your abdomen if they think its warranted. If this is so severe then get it checked today
